Today’s topic for the challenge is to issue a public apology. Its said that it can be serious, funny, creative.

Someone once told me, “the biggest waste of time is feeling sorry for yourself.the second biggest is feeling sorry for someone else.”

I think I was 12 at the time and it has stuck by me all these years. It may sound harsh to some but to me it means “you are in control of your own life.” Basically, if you want something done, you do it. Don’t sit around and feel sorry for yourself, get up and and get it done. I’ve lived by that motto ever since.

So if I’ve ever done anything to offend you I’m sorry but dwelling on it isn’t something you should do. Get over it and get on with it. Sometimes I’ll dwell on a situation where I believe I may have mistakenly offended someone or been offended myself but I remind myself not to sit on it. I have to quit feeling sorry for myself. Forgive the people who have wronged me in the past and remember that people who want to be around me will make the effort to do so. Whatever happens in the end is really up to me.


Today, for day 11 of the challenge, we’re assigned to sell ourselves in 10 words or less.

It’s actually a whole lot harder than it sounds. Ten words? I really really don’t want to do this but okay, let’s make it into a game. Selling each aspect of my life in ten words or less

Calendaring, travel, correspondence, files, mission tours, stake conferences

8 years, 5th grade through Linear Algebra and Differential Equations

Makeup, hair, baking, beauty, fashion, lifestyle, photography

Degree in HR, 2 years experience, orientation, benefits, payroll, PTO

Violin, 8 years, private lessons, orchestra, scholarship, piano, 6 years

Extremely organized, perfectionist, strong, independent, ambitious, daredevil, introvert

I think that’s good.
